First thing first...I feel that I owe a sincere, heartfelt apology to those who may be reading this who suffer from peanut allergies. I am grateful on a daily basis that I don't have that to worry about, but especially when it comes to recipes like this Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream. It is dreamy, creamy, and fabulous. I'm at a loss for words, and I wish I had a giant vat of it and all of you could come over and have an ice cream party. Alas, no vat of ice cream. Photos and a recipe will have to suffice for now. My apologies.
If you're a peanut butter lover, this is the perfect opportunity for you to dust off your ice-cream maker and put it to good use. Any ice cream maker should work fine. Mine attaches to my Kitchen Aid mixer and I love it. Make sure you read the recipe ahead of time to avoid timing frustrations. There's a good bit of chilling time involved, about 6-8 hours before you can churn the ice cream. Believe me. It is totally worth the time. I must have gotten a little too excited about eating mine because when I went to scoop some into my bowl, my favorite ice cream scoop basically exploded in my hand. Not to worry, I have a spare.
